Hanging Banner from Utility Poles
Nothing may be attached to a utility or light pole without the permission of the City. The City Council can grant permission to attach banner to Lighting Department poles. To get permission to hand banners you must petition the City Council. The petition should identify where you want to hang the banner(s), what the banner(s) will say and how long the banners will hang.
No banner will be allowed to block the view of traffic signals or signs. The Public Lighting Department will inspect the poles before advising the City Council about allowing any banners to be attached. The permission given by the City Council is good for up to six months. If you want to hang banners for more than six months, you should petition the City Council for an extension.
The Petitioner is responsible for purchasing, installing and removing the banners and the hardware needed to hang them.
The Public Lighting Department will supply a copy of its Banner Specifications upon request.
Make sure you keep a copy for your records.
If you have any questions regarding application, please call Andre Gilbert at (313) 224-2019.
